Garden gnomes have been around for a very long time. Since the middle of the 19th century, actually. Originally from a German sculptor, they soon gained in popularity and began appearing in gardens across the globe.
Today, there is certainly no shortage. They can be found in just about any pose and form. Funny, cute, rebellious, and obnoxious tones are the currently trending types.
Gnomes can create a mystical appearance in your garden, and in some legends, gnomes are said to be magical. According to popular culture, the legend intertwined in these bearded little men is told that they protect the garden from evil forces, come alive at night and work tirelessly.
